Reese provides the voice to Susan in the animated film, a woman who grows to over 42 feet tall in order to defend against an alien invasion.
“As I was driving home from the theatre I said to my children in the back seat, ‘So, what do you think is the message in this movie?’ My daughter really thoughtfully said, ‘I think it’s about never letting someone underestimate you and always living up to your true potential.’ I said, ‘That is so astute, yes, Ava, that is exactly what the message is.’ Then I said, ‘Deacon, what do you think the movie is about? Friendship? Being an outsider?’ He said, ‘I think it’s about… I think it’s about when octopus aliens come to your planet you got to make sure you kill them.’”
Reese is currently in Europe promoting the new film. She was spotted yesterday in Madrid on her way to lunch with her boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal and Monster co-star Keifer Sutherland.
If you want to see what your little movie critic thinks of the film, it hits theaters on March 27th.
